It has 8-phase VRM for the CPU, four DDR4 memory slots supporting up to 64GB of dual-channel memory and two PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (x8/x8 when both are populated).
Other expansion slots on the Z170 Krait Gaming include a third PCI-Express 3.0 x16 (electrical gen 3.0 x4, wired to the PCH), three PCIe 3.0 x1, and a legacy PCI slot. The board offers MSI's AudioBoost 3 onboard audio solution, and Killer E2205 gigabit Ethernet. Storage connectivity includes six SATA 6 Gb/s ports (from which two can convert to a SATA-Express 16 Gb/s port), and one M.2 slot. Display outputs include DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort.
